- "I've been shot, stabbed, and I was almost raped in Vienna, for fucks sake! Broke my fingers, broke my hand, broke both my feet. Shot in the arm, lost my fucking eye, for Gods sake! Don't I deserve one night with my girlfriend."
- ―Private Prendergast[src]
Private Prendergast was an Allied soldier in the 101th Airborne Division during World War II in 1946 who appears in Wolfenstein: The New Order. Described as tough and can take anything (as seen in the intro mission of what he endures). It's also told from Prendergast's speech in the incinerator that he has a girlfriend/fiancée that he wants to go home to.
Prendergast was one of the eager Privates in the US Air Force. In July, 1946 as the Nazis turn the tide of World War II in their favor, he was on the same plane as Wyatt during their mission to assassinate Deathshead. As Blazkowicz and Fergus evacuate their own plane to assist Wyatt, Prendergast asks Blazkowicz on how he is and how everything is going, Blazkowicz just answers to him vaguely. During their run to Deathshead's compound, he receives injuries (one being a shot to his left eye), and as they stumble onto Deathshead's incinerator, he breaks both of his feet and is unable to walk, Blazkowicz helps him out of the incinerator before it flames up. As he and the rest of them team were captured by Deathshead, the Nazi scientist rejects him due to his injuries.
After being captured by Deathshead, he witness the death of either Fergus Reid or Probst Wyatt. He escaped with the help of B.J. Blazkowicz. Following Nazi Germany's victory in the war, Prendergast joined the Kreisau Circle (with whoever survivor the player chose to save). Prior to 1960, he had taken up residence beneath the Monuments of Truth along with the other members of the Kreisau Circle. Following his crisis of faith in Deathshead's incinerator, he had begun to collect crosses, adorning the walls of his room with them.
Events of 1960Edit
Based on interactions with Fergus/Wyatt, it is established that Prendergast's wounds healed in the years after the assault on Deathshead's compound and had joined the Kreisau Circle along with Wyatt/Fergus. By the time B.J. Blazkowicz comes out of his vegetative state, he had not been seen by any member of the Kreisau Circle for some time and is presumed dead. in Fergus' timeline, he states that he is gone as in Wyatt's timeline, Wyatt states he sent him on a mission and he never came back.
The New ColossusEdit
Prendergast appears in a flashback of the B.J. having to choose Fergus or Wyatt for Deathshead's dissection.
